Wavefront technology was originally developed to help reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. Today, it is revolutionizing the refractive surgery industry. This technology is incorporated into the Wavescan diagnostic system which allows our doctors to now identify, measure and correct imperfections in a patient’s eyes 25 times more precisely than with the standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses.
This is “true” Wavefront guided LASIK, unlike the imitation Wavefront “optimized” Allegretto laser system that simply averages treatments to other patients by only steepening the side of the cornea and not actually correcting higher order aberrations. It does not capture the true fingerprint of the eye and treat it like the VISX CustomVue Technology.
Using Wavefront LASIK technology in conjunction with the Star S4 Iris Registration (IR) laser system, Doctors Moretsky and Cassidy can take the digital information gathered by the Wavescan and develop an individualized treatment plan that can be transferred directly to the laser for a precise “high-definition” vision correction never before possible.
